Just been to Wilkinsons and got a multipack of 3 tins of Deep Blue tuna for £1. I can't believe how expensive tins of tuna have become, but I'll give it to the cats at this price! It's in brine and I've opened a can and it looks fine, not all mushy like it can be.

We don't have a Wilkinsons near us but this is a great deal. I noticed recently that a four-pack of tuna in Tesco had gone up to £4.95 - unbelievable! :thumbsup:
#2
great price, prefer it in sunflower oil meself, but you can't grumble at 3 for a quid! cheers.
#3
Great price, shame we don't have Wilkinsons in N.I.
Heat added :)

3 tins of tuna is half price at tesco's at the moment for £1.99 (princes) and I am the same I cant believe how expensive it is all of a sudden
#5
Good find - I used to get the Tesco's value for my cats as it was as cheap as cat food, then it went up to 55p a tin from 35p, so I haven't been buying it regularly. I'll have happy cats again due to this deal!

Keeping cats happy :) heat added x

3 tins of tuna in brine for £1 instore at Wilkinsons - Smells a bit fishy to me :p

Word of warning - it's ABSOLUTELY REVOLTING!

Fine for the cats - although I suspect they might not be asking for 2nds

It was that bad that I took the remaining 2 cans back - I didnt get an exchange or refund - I just gave them back.

I'm fealing queasy just remembering how awful it was. Pay that little extra and go for 'No frills' - infinitely better

I've been buying it for a while, it's not that bad really.

Only difference is that it's not in big chunks, it's kinda.. I dunno.. like a mass of tuna.

Anyone who's looking for cheap protein, it's a bargain.

Something puts me off buying food from wilkinsons, i just can't bring myself to buy food from the same place i buy silicone sealent and paint and nails. lol.

Just splash a bit of vinegar in it and a pinch of salt and pepper as I do and it'll be fine you won't know the difference from west or princes. I'll get some this weekend thanks OP

I threw the open can away - took the unopened 2 back

I have bought it before (for the cats). It is more Tuna Flakes than Tuna Chunks (despite being advertised as chunks) although at this price it is cheaper than supermarket own label flakes.

Try "Shredded Tuna". It is the grade below "flakes" and is like a baby food paste. :D

Good price, heat added.... thanks

Depends on where it's from? is it Princess or John West? if so then it's a cracking deal, if not then it's a poor deal - simple as.
There's some tuna out there, I'd be reluctant to feed to my dogs in case they never fully recovered.

The offer isn't very specific so I voted COLD.

On the price of tuna over recent years - because I eat quite an amount of tuna, I tend to remember the price. I remember buying the 4 pack tin of Princess in Tesco at £1.99, BOGOF and that was only a couple of years back.

Tuna started to rocket in price when fuel started to rise, but everyone knows fuel's come back down! so what's their excuse now?:roll:

Offer is very specific - brand is Deep Blue as stated. It is more akin to an own label than a "brand" but it is less than OL prices.

The price increase is likely more down ro over fishing of tuna than just fuel costs.

Tuna in brine has quite a high salt content even when drained - so you wouldn't really want to feed them all tuna.

tuna dominates the canned fish market in the uk, if people keep buying then might aswell put the prices up to make more profit

mass consumption would eventually lead to overfishing and less tuna stocks

i love tuna for its nutrition, price, ease of preparation and taste however i dont think its going to get cheaper :(

I really don't think it is simple profiteering. I remember in August-September the supermarkets had massive supply problems and many had empty shelves of OL tuna. After the supply came back it started going up in price. I think if someone like ASDA or Tesco could secure masses of cheap tuna again they would use it to push PR - as you say tuna is popular with customers.

Even the premium branded tuna is dearer than it used to be. Deals like 3 cans princes/JW for a 2 pounds would have been 6 cans for 2 pounds a year ago.
